This cube-like, 10-story, 240-foot-tall tower seems to hover over the ground as if it were a sculpture on a pedestal. The Building Team created this floating effect with a cantilevered perimeter consisting of 24 columns, each 42 inches in diameter, supported by a 600-ton truss system nine stories above. 

The design-build process facilitated this effort by involving the construction team early in the design phase. For example, those meetings came up with a practical truss scheme inspired by the concentric properties of a wagon wheel.
